RE: Susanna Reimel Kratzer
Hello Bertha,

There should have been a note of explanation that arrived along with the decline notice. I know that for awhile these notes were not arriving, due to a glitch in the site, but I thought that it had been fixed quite some time ago. Anyway, the reason I would not link Susanna to her parents is because they are listed on the site as 'burial unknown'. Because this site is designed to locate final dispositions, 'burial unknowns' compromise the integrity of the database. The option exists and is to be used (according to the FAQ) for recent burials only, with the disposition being determined within 30 days. It is not to be used for persons long dead, particularly those where no death date or place of death is even known. If you eventually locate the burial place of the Reimels, please feel free to resubmit the SAC.

Thank you,

Bertha; This whole thing looks messy. A BU with different spelling? sigh.... I did the transfer anyway. Hope you can do something with it. Regards, Don Short

RE: Emma Faith
Not a problem. Many of my ancestors present me with name problems. Don't know how long I should wait on Anonymous (don't you just love those who haven't the courage to put their names behind what they say?) before going over Anonymous' head.

Emma Faith "Sarah" Seabrook Fairchild
Hi Bertha,

I don't know if this is part of The Name and Family of Fairchild, by Timothy Marsh Fairfield, Mercer Print Co., Iowa City, Iowa, 1944, but p. 4 has info on this person. Can't remember it at the moment & can't search as old age & disease are making things very difficult now. Anyway, p. 6 of this book says of Thomas Fairchild, "... by his first wife, Sarah Seabrook, ...". The Abridged Compendium of American Genealogy, p. 976, citing this book, says, "Fairchild, Thomas (1610-1670)... married Faith, daughter of Robert Seabrook", but concludes that her name was Emma.
Lineages of Members of the National Society of Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims, Vol. 5, p. 222, says her name is Sarah.
Torrey, p. 257, says, "?Emma/?Sarah".
Genealogy of Some of the Descendants of Thomas Wheeler ..., by William D. Wheeler, Washington, D.C., p. 23, says Sarah, daughter of Robert & Alice Seabrook, married Thomas Fayrechild (or Fairchild).
The History of Old Stratford is also cited. I haven't looked at that yet, but will have to close before I suffer a total meltdown.

Emma Faith "Sarah" Seabrook
From England Births & Christenings,1538-1975, I have:

1. Sarah Sebroke, d/o Robert, bp. 28 Dec 1600,
Tring, Hertford. Eng.
2. Amy (Emma?) Sebrooke, bp. 16 Sep 1621,
Cheddington, Buckingham, Eng. (Cheddington is ca
3 miles north of Tring.)
3. Fayth Seaybrowk, d/o Robert, bp. 21 Dec 1636,
Tring, Hertford. Eng.

All three names are found in sources, which themselves are not sourced. Since Sarah is the name of the 1st d/o Thomas found in vital records, that is my choice - others argue differently - for the name of the 1st wife of Thomas Fairchild. I further note that Thomas & Sarah did not have, according to vital records, a daughter named Faith. I don't find a separate file for my Seabrook line. so I will see what I can find.

Emma Faith "Sarah" Seabrook Fairchild
Hi Brenda,

I didn't create #83442569, Find A Grave search didn't reveal it - so I have contacted Anonymous for transfer. I will then search my files for more info. Middle names were rare in 17th century. Double middle names were almost non-existent, & Emma was usually a diminutive for Emily, so I question "Emma Faith" as being her given name. I also note that her first daughter was named Sarah; her 2nd daughter,Dinah, & her 3rd & last daughter, Emma. I have Sarah born 28 Dec 1600, Tring, Hertford, England. Anonymous says 28 Dec 1620, Wingrave, Buckingham, England. I have Sarah dying, 1659, in Stratford. Anonymous has her dying 23 Oct 1658, 5 years to the day, after 23 Oct 1653, the date of birth of her last child, Emma (23 Oct 1653-1732). I'll have to get back to you, it's time for my daily nap.

Ms. Buttner, your loved one was buried at Panther Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. This is a picture of Panther Creek Baptist Church. It has everything to do with his burial. If you would like to post your picture, please feel free to to do so. But I am leaving the church picture up.

Montgomery Family Cemetery
Dear Mrs. Buttner: I hope this message finds you well. I was wondering if you could tell me where the Montgomery Family Cemetery in Ararat, Va. is located. I'm trying to document the cemeteries in northwest Stokes County, N.C./southwest Patrick County, Va. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There are two more Gise memorials Lulu Gise Krinic and L. Mae Gise Saunders at Hillside. Would you like those transfers?

RE: Photo request fulfillment
I have the book for Union Cemetery that the Tusc. Co. Genealogical make in 1986 when they read the cemeteries in Tusc. Co.. In there they have a list of all the people that are in the Mausoleum. Did you see the photos of the Mausoleum that I posted ?? It is huge. Only family members have keys to get into the bldg...It is very old.....

Any chance you could go to the Woodland Cemetery in Dayton for me?

I am trying to get my entire Randall family in section 31, Lot 1350.

RE: Melinda S Stokes-Biebigheiser
Actually, I know nothing about her or her history other than she is listed on the memorial wall in the cemetery as indicated. If you have particular information, such as an exact date of birth, place of birth, etc., I will list that.
I wish I could be of more help, but at least you have the dod (year) and that she likely died in the west valley of Phoenix. Dave Alexander

Charlotte Elaine Marshall Gwynn
Dear Bertha:
I am the younger sister of Charlotte Elaine Marshall Gwynn and this is in reply to your note that you left on her "find-a-grave" on
Charlotte is buried in the Gwynn Cemetery located on rt. 676 about one mile south of intersection of rds. 676-677 in orchard. This cemetery is listed on page 338 of Patrick Co., VA Cemetery Book by O. E. Pilson, and the cemetery number is (766). This book was printed before Charlotte's death, so her name is not on the list of those buried there. Her husband John Barker Gwynn is also buried beside her. He was born March 28, 1921 in Patrick Co., VA and died on May 3, 2003 in Baptist Hospital, Winston-Salem, NC.
John Barker Gwynn's parents Levi A. Gwynn, born November 5, 1887 & died June 14, 1937 and Rachel Etta Hall, Born March 22, 1892 & died August 29, 1977 are also buried in this Gwynn Cemetery. If additional information is needed, please contact me "Hobo_Kid" at Thank you for the work you perform on "Find-A-Grave." Sincerely, RMA
